Drake replaces 50 Cent on Forbes richest hip-hop stars
May 4, 2016 4:12pm | Fact Magazine
Financial troubles push the bankrupt rapper out of the list.
Drake has taken 50 Cents long-time spot on Forbes list of the five richest hip-hop stars.
The switch comes from a combination of 50’s financial troubles and lucrative business moves from Drake (partnerships with Sprite, Apple, and Nike) as well as the enormous success of his new album Views. Drake currently has an estimated net worth of $60 million, though he has a long way to go as Diddy tops the list with roughly $750 million.
50 Cent has recently had a rough time in bankruptcy court, but he recently got a boost when his self-help book was read aloud in the Senate during a filibuster. His situation can only improve when he battles The Predator in 2018.
Listen to the inescapable ‘Hotline Bling’ below and revisit our review of Views.

Boba Fett was originally supposed to be the main villain in Return of the Jedi
May 4, 2016 4:05pm | Cosequence Of Sound
It just wouldnt feel like May the 4th without a juicy tidbit of news from a galaxy far, far away. Craig Miller, Lucasfilms first official fan relations officer, offered up such a revelation in an interview with Inverse published this morning. It basically boils down to this: Boba Fett was supposed to be the main villain of Return of the Jedi, but George Lucas (in typical George Lucas fashion) changed the plot at the last minute when he decided he didnt want to make a third trilogy.
Back in the late 70s, while Lucas was still in the process of writing and filming his blockbuster space trilogy, it was Millers job to keep fans interested and sustain the buzz between films. This was no easy task in an era with no social media and no renowned online film publications, and much of Millers work involved inventing strange rumors for fans to wring their hands over. He even went so far as to write a fake treatment for The Empire Strikes Back, which contained just enough details to seem credible (like that there would be an ice planet).
As Inverse notes, some of these rumors — originally published in Starlog Magazine — have been preserved online at Archive.org, including suggestions that Mick Jagger would compose the score for The Empire Strikes Back (!), Luke would convince Han to become a Jedi (!!), and the Millennium Falcon would enter a time warp and end up back in the Clone Wars (!!!).

The Weeknd reunites with House of Balloons producers
May 4, 2016 3:50pm | Fact Magazine
The Weeknd is already working on new music.
A new interview with Vogue notes that The Weeknd is working with producers he collaborated with on House of Balloon. In aside, arts editor Mark Guiducci notes: “The Weeknd purists will be pleased to hear that hes in the studio with the House of Balloons team again. ‘But its a new thing,’ Tesfaye assures me. ‘Always a new thing.'”
This perhaps means it will have the same polish and his latest Beauty Behind the Madness instead of the grit of his debut. House of Balloon remains a favorite among longtime fans and is arguably his best work. Last year it was finally released on vinyl.

Cloud Becomes Your Hand conduct joyous experiments on Rest In Fleas, share first single
May 4, 2016 3:10pm | Fact Magazine
The cacophonous Brooklyn band sound better than ever on the first single from their new album.
Brooklyn sextet Cloud Becomes Your Hand have such a knack for silly, cartoonish melodies that it can almost distract that they’re one of the most technically dazzling experimental rock bands on the rise. Their debut Rocks Or Cakes hinted at it, but the first single from their upcoming Rest In Fleas hits with the kind of magic you could only get out of their chaotic live shows.
‘Bridge Of Ignorance Returns’ juggles so many things at once it’s hard to keep up. There’s the racing percussion from drummer Booker Stardrum going toe-to-toe with new member (and former Guerilla Toss-er) Simon Hanes. Then there’s the bleary Bitches Brew-style synthesizers from Best Of Bandcamp-alum Weston Minissali and globs of sonic-strange courtesy of MIDI-percussionist Sam Sowyrda and violinist Hunter Jack.
They’re all reigned in by bandleader Stephe Cooper who turns his group into a wrecking ball of loopy melodies and unpredictable turns (including burning the track down to a hypnotic motorik-plus-horns groove before interrupting with what sounds like the crunch of an apple).
Cloud Becomes Your Hand have felt like a well kept secret for too long listen to ‘Bridge of Ignorance Returns’ below and grab Rest In Fleas via ...

Morrissey gives stamp of approval to upcoming Smiths-themed film Shoplifters of the World
May 4, 2016 2:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Hollywood has been trying to get a movie about The Smiths called Shoplifters of the World made for a few years now. According to a new report by Showbiz411 (via Pitchfork), the film is creeping closer towards a production start as Morrissey has given it his stamp of approval.
Starring Joe Manganiello, the movie is a fictionalization of a real plot hatched by a crazed Smiths fan back in 1988. The story goes that a young fan named James Kiss, upset over his favorite band’s split a year prior and the fact that his local radio channels never played any of their music, intended to hijack the number one station in Denver, CO. His plan was to hold the staff hostage at gun point and force them to spin nothing but Smiths and Morrissey music in place of their usual Top 40 catalog. However, he never actually carried out his scheme, abandoning the idea multiple times before finally giving himself up in the station’s parking lot.
Magnaniello, known for roles in True Blood, Sam Rami’s Spider-Man films, and Magic Mike, will reportedly star as the station’s DJ. The film will imagine events as if Kiss went forward with the plot, and will be set in 1987, the year The Smiths broke up.
Morrissey himself has given Shoplifters of the World his blessing, even aggreing to license The Smiths’ music for use in the film. ̶...
